Shocking: Ortom Held in EFCC Custody Over Alleged Misappropriation Scandal.

Samuel Ortom in EFCC Custody for Alleged Misappropriation of Funds

The former Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, is currently in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), following an invitation for questioning regarding alleged misappropriation of funds, about a month after leaving office.

Arrival at the Abuja Office

Channels Television reports that the former Benue governor arrived at the Abuja office of the EFCC on Tuesday morning and was seen walking into the building of the anti-graft agency. Former Governor Ortom has been accused of embezzlement and other corrupt practices that he’s been asked to answer.

The Debt Profile of Benue State

Benue State is said to have a debt profile of N187.7 billion. This debt profile was frequently cited by Governor Ortom during his time in office as a significant financial burden that prevented the state from realizing its development objectives.

The former Governor has found himself in hot water following his alleged misappropriation of the state’s funds. The EFCC, as part of its ongoing efforts to curb corruption in Nigeria, invited him for questioning on the matter.
